Symatic Star - Solar Storm
is Simon Walsh. An accomplished bassist, he immerses himself in synthesis, using timbre and texture as compositional elements in pursuit of the atmospheric sounds he imagines.
This, his 6th and most experimental release to date, reflects the fire of that imagination.
A live recording created with multiple Nord G2 Modular Synthesizers played/modulated and further patched in real time as 2012's largest solar storm was sweeping across the Earth.
Simon: "Living in a remote coastal forest of Western Australia the Internet is a highly valued tool for sharing my music and sounds with people around the world and beyond."
Buddhist on Fire releases dark ambient, experimental, field recordings, sound collage. Live shows from the Sadayatana Podcast and projects from The Chestnut Tree are also featured. Everything is released using a Creative Commons license.

This release combines some of my favorite song elements: A use of layers, a sense of controlled chaos, sounds that are drones, and details that keep the piece interesting throughout. It is also very evocative of its subject.
